It's fair to say that after doing this blog for the past year or so, my love for Country Road is far from a secret. I'd be lying to you all if I said I didn't go into one of their stores at least once a week and I'd also be lying if I said the moment I receive a 'spend and save' voucher in the mail my bank account begs for mercy. Yesterday I received Country Road's winter preview catalogue in the mail and dear God I couldn't have been more excited by the fact that my 'spend and save' voucher had come a few days prior. Flicking through the cataglogue, there's a noticable trend through out. The double denim reminds me of Chloe, the black jodhpurs of Rick Owens, the fur of Isabel Marant (especially with the orange through it) and the shoes in the very last picture of Alexander Wang. Most people probably wouldn't look too far into something like this but I think that's what makes Country Road's new Winter collection so appealing to young people - the fact that it subtly reflects all of the biggest young designers of the moment. It sure as hell is what has me hooked.
